Banding together is great Karma…

Bloggers are a unique bunch. We are so creative and it’s hard to slow down enough to think about blogging in a logical manner. You may know where you want to end up, or have a dream of what your blog will look like when you succeed. But it’s the getting there that we need to think about.

Sometimes it seems all we do is work on the blog, creating, photographing, writing, editing, visiting other bloggers, social media promoting, linking to blog parties. And it takes so darn long to get ahead. So long. It’s frustrating.

Paleo Creamy Cilantro Lime Chicken

When we first decided to give Paleo a try, I was worried that there wouldn’t be a variety of foods to eat or that I would get bored with our options. Luckily, that’s not the case. I actually think that we eat a much wider variety of foods, that taste much better now. (Of course, it helps that I had to learn how to cook).

Another of my concerns when going paleo was that cooking everything from scratch was going to be impossible for someone with my lack of cooking skills, and that cooking everything from scratch was going to take forever. Luckily, neither of those concerns turned out to be valid ones. There are tons of recipes out there that work for people who need to refine their cooking skills and plenty of recipes that don’t take forever to make either. This paleo creamy cilantro lime chicken falls into both of those categories. It’s easy to make and can be on the table in slightly more time than it would take to make a frozen pizza. This tastes much better though, and is much healthier. Plus, the entire dish cooks in one skillet, making clean-up easier.

Have you ever had a food enter your mind and that’s all you can think about for the rest of the day? I have. Maybe it’s a pregnancy thing, or maybe it’s just the kind of person that I am, but that’s how these Primal Sausage and Onion Stuffed Peppers came to be. My family and I were driving somewhere and we drove past an ice cream stand that had a sign out front that said, “Sausage, Peppers and Onion Grinders.” (Grinders are New England speak for subs, or hoagies). Normally, that’s a food that I would only get at a fair. I don’t know why, but they just taste better at a fair. Regardless, once I read that sign, I could not stop thinking about them. So, the trick, of course, was coming up with a way to omit the bread, and still have them taste just as good.

Sometimes, when I go to the local farmstand, my eyes are bigger than my stomach, and I end up with more vegetables than I need. That’s where recipes like this Paleo Beef Stir Fry comes in. It’s a quick and easy meal, and an awesome way to use up all of the extra vegetables I have lying around. On this particular night, I had some red onion, green bell pepper, carrots and zucchini that I needed to use, so that’s what I added to the stir fry. I’m sure broccoli and sugar snap peas would have also been delicious, but I used what I had. This recipe allows for plenty of flexibility. I also loaded up on the vegetables so that there was no need to serve this dish over cauliflower rice or even regular rice, if you eat it. Next time, I’ll likely add even more vegetables.

April Health Updates

As I have mentioned recently, I have been having a bit of a rough patch with my health lately. While searching for the cause of my mysterious ankle swelling, we made a couple of discoveries. The first discovery is that I am having some sort of thyroid issue. It looks like my thyroid isn’t producing enough of the hormones that it is supposed to. My endocrinologist, however, rather than being quick to prescribe some medication, it taking a different approach. We are going to monitor things very closely for the time being, and see what happens. I’m comfortable with this approach because I think that with a few less cheat meals, and a more strict approach to paleo, I can probably manage this condition without medication. (If my doctor really felt that medication was the right way to go, I would listen. I don’t advise making medical decisions without discussing it with your doctor, because what works for me, might not work for you).

Paleo Friendly Steak Tips with Peppers and Onions

When I was growing up, I hated onions. I wouldn’t eat them under any circumstances. Everyone else in my familt, however, did like them, so they made their way into our meals quite often. As a kid, it was annoying to have to eat around them, but as a adult, I actually appreciate that my parents offered them to me so much. I also really appreciate that dinner was what my mom cooked, and that was the end of it. My mom worked hard to take care of us, and we were taught to respect that.
